Vintage Christmas Card - Day 24

I have a lot of graphic clip art and one of the places I get some freebies is from Dover Publications. I had signed up to receive their free samples and this where I got the vintage Santa's for these two cards. This card is based on the Scrapbook Heaven Card Crop Lee's #1 Card Tutorial.

I used a scallop punch and x-mas tree to make my accents. I also embossed the tree with the swirl stamp and white embossing powder before covering with Diamond Glaze. The buckle is from the Fabulous Finds Cartridge and embossed with gold embossing powder.
Side view of the card. Since I did not use pop up dots it's really pretty flat for mailing.

For my swirl paper I stamped the swirls and embossed them to get the same look Lee had with he paper.
Thanks for stopping by.

I do have a cricut file for the buckle and I've enclosed a pattern for a circle and a Christmas trees which I have not cut. Click here for the cut file.

Paper: DCWV cardstock - white, green, red; Pattern Paper - unknown
